Dorito Casserole

When you take a bite of this delicious casserole, you are greeted with crunchy chips, a delicious beef mixture, and loads of cheese. The beef mixture is a combination of salsa, taco seasoning, sour cream, and ground beef.

You should be able to feed six people from a single batch of this recipe. If you need to feed more, then I recommend making some side dishes or doubling the recipe. You will need multiple casserole dishes if you decide to double the recipe.

The leftovers of this casserole are delicious, so make sure you keep them. However, it is important to note that the Doritos will be quite soggy when you reheat the leftovers. You can keep the leftovers for up to three days in the refrigerator.

Adjusting the Recipe

There are quite a few ways you can adjust this recipe so that it is more to your liking. Below are a couple of ideas on what you can do.

Feel free to add more vegetables to the ground beef mixture. For example, bell peppers, diced tomatoes, olives, or even mushrooms will work nicely with the rest of the ingredients.

Use your favorite flavor of Dorito for the best results. I typically use supreme cheese, but nacho cheese will also work very nicely. Be sure to let us know the flavor you end up using.

I recommend using cheddar cheese in this recipe, but other types of cheese will also work. For example, a blend of mozzarella and cheddar is always highly recommended.

What to Serve with Dorito Casserole

There are plenty of accompaniments and side dishes that will work nicely with this casserole. Below are just a couple of my favorite ideas.

You can also top the casserole with some extra ingredients such as chopped tomato or chopped avocado. Cilantro is also a pretty good garnish for the casserole.

There are loads of condiments that work great with this casserole. I love to let people serve the casserole with some extra tomato salsa, homemade guacamole, refried beans, and extra sour cream.

If I am cooking for a crowd, I love to cook some extra food. Something like a side of garlic bread will work very nicely with the casserole. You can pick some garlic bread up at the local supermarket, or make it at home.

Recipe Tips

  • I recommend baking the casserole immediately; otherwise, the Doritos will start to go soggy.
  • Doritos is recommended, but other brands of tortilla chips will work fine as a replacement.
  • Feel free to replace the ground beef with other meats such as ground turkey or shredded chicken.
  • You can crush the Doritos slightly, so they are not as big. Make sure you do not crush them too much as they will turn to mush. I prefer to leave them at the full size.
